FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a WD-repeat protein that binds the cytoplasmic sphingomyelinase activation domain of the 55kD tumor necrosis factor receptor. This protein is required for TNF-mediated activation of neutral sphingomyelinase and may play a role in regulating TNF-induced cellular responses such as inflammation. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2009]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for a targeted null mutation show no gross phenotypic abnormalities but display delayed cutaneous barrier repair. In addition, D-galactosamine-sensitized homozygotes are partially resistant to LPS- and TNF-induced lethality. [provided by MGI curators]
